On the 6th July 2018, 18 Pakistani men aged 16-30 started from Velika Kladusa, Bosnia towards Croatia. After 6 hours walking, they were stopped by a group of 6 police officers with a police car and a dog, the police immediately started beating them with sticks. The police did not ask them any questions and kept beating them for several minutes, including the two minors. Several men tried to express their intention to ask for asylum to the police officers, but the police refused to speak to them and only kept saying: “Stop speaking!” The police officers stole from the men around 2000€ and 16 mobile phones. After that, the men were all put together in a police car and pushed back to the Bosnian border, where they shouted at them to run and go back to Bosnia.
